I brought my fiancé for a quick visit. Thought it would romantic to play for 30 minutes or so before dinner. We come to find out that the only way to play is a $15 flat rate per person. I thought that was pretty ridiculous....More

This is a great way to show and kids and grandkids the fun of using pinball machines and classic arcade games, such as PacMan, Ms. PacMan, Donkey Kong, etc. One fee per person gets a wrist band that allows all day play - so you...More

I'm not a fan of museums, so I don't visit them often. However, this museum seemed like one I'd enjoy. My brother and I who were in town to visit as many brew pubs as possible, decided to take break from the wonderful pubs, and...More

We had such a good time! It’s like stepping into a time machine. You don’t have to pay if you want to just look around, but unlimited playing is 15 a person! Not bad at all. It is very hard not to get distracted by...More

Really enjoy going here with friends every once in a while. It's affordable fun! You can spend hours in here playing the pinball and arcade games. There are affordable drinks (including local craft beer). Great spot for kids and adults!

You pay $13 to enter. You can stay as long as you want. The machines are set on free pay. You also get a wrist band when you pay. The wrist band allows you to leave and come back later on the same day.

I see someone supplied the hours of business. I'd like to add that earlier is better if you're looking for them to be less busy. You're also more apt to find nearby street parking. It's AMAZING! If you're considering it... More
